Neil Porter

I understand that life can be difficult - we all face struggles which can be overwhelming and difficult to manage. It doesn’t have to be that way- I believe we have the power within us to heal and grow, to become the master of our feelings and emotions, even in rocky waters. These things can be hard to tackle on our own however. I am an experienced bacp registered counsellor, with a desire to listen and help guide you through any difficulty you may be facing. I like to create a welcoming and relaxed environment where you feel safe to share your thoughts, feelings and experiences. I have a versatile approach with my clients, allowing me to cater to your individual needs and goals. You are not alone and things can get better, please get in touch - I would love to help!

Self Esteem

Self Confidence relates to how we view ourselves. Some times we can have a poor and negative view of ourselves and feel we aren't good enough. You may see yourself negatively or worry that others are viewing you in a negative light.

Traumatic past events, such as an accident or being the victim of abuse, may pose a psychological impact on your present day life. 

Depression is a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. It affects how you feel, think and behave. It can cause a lack of feeling or numbness as well as a recurrent negative outlook on life.
